The Duncan SSL-1 is a great front pickup imo, not too expensive either.
arsenal of non-strat PUPs...
but the project still has no neck
What neck are you thinking of using?
I'm going through this right now actually. I am seriously thinking of getting a USACG Strat neck with a 12" radius, and an ebony fretboard, and a Jazzmaster size headstock. I would get binding too, but USACG doesn't do binding, but from my research USASG is among the better options to go with, quality wise.
Also are you going to get a quarter sawn or flat sawn neck?
Or maybe an original strat neck?
I havent decided, which way to go for the neck. I heard great things about USACG necks. There was an offer for one used with good specs, but I missed it. There's also a luthier, who orders and finishes Allparts necks according to your individuel specs. I think Musikraft is another good option. All these are - customized for you - very pricey of course. Binding looks cool, but has its price tag too !
I'd be happy with a used neck from a really good Japan Strat too - or an old Coronado neck ! I have no clue about quarter sawn / flat sawn....
What I would like:
- dark rosewood
- veneer board
- thick neck profile (best would be same neck profile like my LSL T-Bone - it feels great !!!)
- 21 frets
- vintage 60ies style headstock
- nitro finish slightly aged (yellowed)
- vintage style klusons
- bone nut cut for 11s
- medium frets
Well - I'm not in a hurry, but having this nice arsenal of PUPs, I'm getting excited about the project
Got it! Yeah, cost is a factor! Have you looked at stratosphere.com? They have parted out Fender parts, but these can be quite expensive too!
I really want a matching headstock (I'll prob. get some local dude to do it), ebony board and 12" radius which really limits my choices!
nope havent looked at stratosphere.com (but will now )... Ebony is cool ! I have an MJT body (no, it's in fact 2) and I will get along with standard headstock... I could put the neck of my 93/94 MIJ Strat on it and try !???! But demounting is always... hmm not sooo great ...
